1973 is (was) one of my favorite years/

Not the GD, I mean the year. I had a great time.

The only GD show I saw that year (that I can recall) was the Cow Palace - debut of the monster wall of speakers.

But, I was nowhere near the stage, and there was no big screen in those days.

I was with my girlfriend Kathy Anderson (Andersen?) - the gal I shoulda married.

We sat there in the first row bleachers, enjoyed it, and I can't remember a thing today about the show itself.

But, a friend was down in front at that show...

and he told me later, that Garcia had tears in his eyes when he sang "Morning Dew".

I think Jerry missed Pigpen. But life goes on.

I believe Pigpen would have kept Jerry off the h.

But there were still a few good years left for the GD, for u, for me, but if u ask me, if God has an iPod, it's not 1973 He's listening to.

It's 1966.
It's always 1966.

If there's a heaven, it must be 1969.
That was the year.

This is the year.

Forget it.

It's over before it began.

It never ends...
